Google AdSense Keyword Density

The forum folks at DigitalPoint are discussing what is the best keyword density for your AdSense ads to show the most relevant ads. Some member say you want at least a total "around 200 words with a 4% density" to get the most relevant ads. And here is a quote from page two.

go for 4% but not from the get go. I kind of work my way up there. The problem is, it could take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks for the change to take effect.

To complicate matters a change may take effect very quickly within a few hours only to return to the original in a day or two! So you need to monitor it carefully.

Also, in my opinion the mediapartners bot prefers to “see” a couple of keyphrases so I always target say “striped blue widgets” 2.5%, “blue widgets” by itself around 3.5% and 1% or so of “blue striped widgets” while all the time target is really “blue widgets”.

Note that the above densities are not cumulative. Total “blue widgets” density never exceeds 4%

Talk about watching AdSense like a hawk. :)
